The DLR project RCAS (Railway Collision Avoidance System) aims the development, the evaluation and the demonstration of technologies for collision avoidance.

The department of optical information systems is responsible for vehicle based optical sensors within this project. It contributes to conception, test and operation of monocular and stereo cameras, its geometrical and radiometric calibration and to image data processing. The scientific goals on this area within the project are:

  • Detection of switches
  • Optical localisation
  • Multi-sensor localisation (using additional GPS and inertial measurement units)
  • 3D modelling
